Carmona, from the Latin Carmo, was the strongest city in Spain in the times of Julius Caesar. Built on a ridge overlooking the central plain of Andalusia, Carmona boasts a thriving trade in wine, olive oil, grain and cattle. The town is home to the Citadel, which now lays in ruins, yet which ones served as the principal fortress of Pedro of Castile, and which is now a luxurious Parador. Carmona is also home to exquisite Andalusian cooking, that serves a great variety of tapas and local dishes.
